Additional Information

Colonel Briggs is a member of the United States Air Force who replaces Colonel Jack Sydell on Air Force Special Detachment One.

Jamie Hamilton tells Troy and Dillon that she is visited by Briggs earlier that day regarding the two Colonial Warriors. Due to his visit, Hamilton tells the Warriors not to use their Viper (1980: "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I").

Briggs is later on a private jet to New York City, the projected point where the unidentified blip from space (the Cylons' new A-B Raider) will crash land (1980: "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I").

He later attempts to obtain the assistance of the New York Police Department in preventing Troy and Dillon from coming to harm, wanting to question them. During his discussion with the NYPD police chief, he is told about Andromus' destruction of the microwave that started the blaze at Arnie's apartment, believing it to be the Colonial Warriors.

Much to his apparent chagrin, Briggs finds out from Norman Blore that Troy was at the apartment, but saved their lives (1980: "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part II").
